Nothing Left To Do

An interesting conundrum with western society, especially in America is this idea that there is nothing else we can do because Jesus came and died for us. There is no go and save a cat from a tree (which I would never do...cats are evil) or know that you found Jesus you need to go and do X,Y, and Z. Jesus died a horrible death so that we could be together. This is found in an often neglected bible verse that I came across in my quiet time the other day, Hebrews 10:14 For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified.

What a promise that is. He died for us so that we may be found in Christ. There is nothing left for us to do.

We are so often judged by others for the things we do. I remember an early conversation that I had after I become saved. The person I was talking to was interested in what I did to become a Christian. I had replied with a comment of I confessed everything that I had done wrong and asked God to forgive me and he did. He responded with that's it, you don't have to go work at a soup kitchen or give all your stuff away. Being new at it, I wasn't sure and responded I think that if God asks me to I'm suppose to. He was like there has to be something that you have to. 

The truth is at the time I didn't have an answer, but I learned since then that we are suppose to live by God's word. What I thought about back then is still true today, we are suppose to do whatever God calls us too. 

Have you given to God what is God's lately, there is nothing we can do other than to ask God to live in your heart. There is nothing left to do.
